Hello everyone,

I'm on my 2nd sport bike, a 2020 R3 and after trying out a friends CBR600 and then a R6, I think a bigger cc Yamaha needs to be my next bike.

The new R7 sure seems to be it from the rumored specs!

Hoping to learn more about it here and share any knowledge I can :)

Hey @YamiRyder I'm pretty much in the same boat as you are. I'm looking to upgrade to a more powerful bike as well and the R7 seems to tick off a lot of boxes. I thought about getting a R6 for a while but when I heard about the R7 I held off.

Hello folks. Just put a deposit on a blue R7. I've been a moto-pilot for almost 30 years, with lots of street and track experience. I've been private consultant/coach for about 5 years. I figure getting in on the ground floor of the R7 community would be a good thing. 🙃

Congratulations @EnjoyTheRideMC! how much was the deposit if you don't mind me asking? Do you plan on tracking your R7 at all?

Thank you much.

It was through the Yamaha website. $500.00. I hope I could track it, but life is busy right now, so I may or may not follow it. Its only next month when they are expected anyway. I have a 2022 Honda Grom on its way too for fun's sake, and as a teaching tool.

They're already sold out! I wonder how many spots they had. I've never ridden a Grom but I hear they're a lot of fun.

Hi everyone,

My wfie and I bought R7s recently as well. We both intend to track/race them. We also both hava R3s that we race and her R3 is sold pending funds from the buyer. Im not sure if I will keep my R3 or race it. If I decide to keep it, the only class I would be missing for track riding is a literbike.

To answer your question OP, I have ridden a racebuilt MT-07FZ-01R that was built by Andy Palmer of AP MotoArts as well as a stock MT07. I have ridden many bikes on the track and the R7 would be a perfect transition to more power.

Im curious though if you have ever tracked your R3. If you haven't I would highly recommend you get track fast on that to be able to appreciate bigger bikes like the R7, or R6 ,etc.

I just traded in my 2018 R3 for the new R7. I was worried at first about the power at first. The R7 power band is tuned nicely so it's not to much initial get up. Its a fun type of fast not a scary one. The only draw back is how much more agressive the seating possition is.

That's awesome that you and your wife got R7s together! Are they matching colors?
